Quinoa Porridge
Turned out perfect. I didn't add sugar though as am avoiding sugar at the moment. I rinsed the quinoa as per packet instructions, then put on a hot pan with some cinnamon, heated and stirred for about 4 mins until the excess water had evapourated and the quinoa was just about sticking to the pan. I stuck to the 2:1 ratio but used mostly almond milk and a small bit of water, brought it to the boil then turned to lowest heat, and left UNCOVERED to simmer. After 15 mins nearly all the water was gone so I snuck a taste and it was still very crunchy and I was busy with something else so I took it off the heat and covered it and just left it there for about 5 mins. I tasted again, and it was perfect. Just a tiny crunch but with a lovely sticky/stodgy consistency of porridge which I love but this is a great healthier alternative. I added a tiny bit of yoghurt and berry smoothie I had just made up, to sweeten. Lovely, and very filling. I would say the result just varies by quality of quinoa you have and the heat of your cooker top and if it doesn't work first time, try again, it's worth it.

Mung Bean Stew
Really tasty. I cooked it in a slow cooker. The only change was I added some extra water and it was a nice consistency, not too thick.

Tofu Salad
This was incredibly tasty! I had a box of tofu in the cupboard for months and decided I MUST use it up so made this. I don't normally eat tofu but this salad was really tasty. I didn't have red cabbage and I put a little extra sweet chili sauce in but it still seemed great. The texture of the nuts added to it too. I didn't cook the snow peas and the crunch was lovely. I will be making this again! Tofu Convert.
